Day 3 at home


I've been grounded and it sucks. I threw my back out on Sunday in the fray of getting ready for mom. I did it pretty good this time. By Monday morning I was worse off, Honey called in to work and got me to the DR where he tested my range of motion and the extent of my injuries. I screamed like a woman having a baby three times before I could clamp my mouth shut. I must have sounded like a woman having a baby. So now I'm jacked up on muscle relaxants and vicodin. Honey says I have to stay in bed on the heating pad. No driving, which I agree. But tomorrow, I may have to break out with the aid of a friend before I get really cranky. If I can get up and straight I can walk ok, though my knee tends to buckle. Sciatica. Same with sitting, if I manage to get down, I'm okay till I have to move. The only fun part? I have a silver bell to ring when I need something.

Meno- back in the day I would have had the dogs bring VODKA to me with my vicodin, now it's diet Mountain Dew.

Soapy- Vicodin means no driving. But tons of crappy tv.

Kim-The silver bell is a left over from my wedding, everybody had little bells tied in aqua ribbon to ring instead of throwing crap at us.

Oh you poor thing. Do you have trashy magazines and word searches to keep you busy? Word searches are great for when the back goes out. I feel for you because I've been there. Hope you feel better and stronger but don't over do it when you do.
